Together with women’s movements, we will work towards eliminating all forms of VAWG, including against women and girls with disabilitiesWe commit to supporting movements and WROs led by and for women with disabilities to evidence their specific experiences of discrimination and oppression and what works for VAWG prevention and response. We will create platforms for women’s rights activists and VAWG survivors to advocate for change, and advocate for CRPD and CEDAW frameworks to be implemented at all levels. 

Timeframe and/or implementation plan
Ongoing during the lifetime of the Womankind Worldwide Strategy – 2016 – 2021, which sets out our ambition to support and nourish diverse and independent national women’s movements. In delivering this strategy, we  will work not only with WROs led by and for women with disabilities, but also a  diverse range of organisations that make up women’s movements.. We will support them to understand how discrimination based on disability is multiplied when combined with other discriminations and oppressions including those based on sexuality, caste, religion, economic status, age, location and race.
